At first, the Berserkers were a clan of elite knights from the Holy Roman Empire who Johan Dürer joined and commanded. It was the day that the Evil Seed rose and cursed the knights into monster beings, along with Johan Dürer and the castle lord. The strongest ones are still alive and spotted at an Eastern forest in Europe. Most of them now reside in labyrinths with secret motivations.
Berserker is an enemy character who first appeared in Soulcalibur II's Weapon Master mode. Berserker is only playable in the North America and European console versions of SCII, along with Assassin and Lizardman. He has 6 different costumes: three with armor and three without. He screams and grunts, but never speaks. Berserkers are people enshrouded by evil aura, following their master Johan Dürer and a monster (the lord) in Eastern Europe. They guard many dungeons through which players must navigate. It's unknown if the Berserkers are now abandoned by their master. Berserker is a combination of Rock and Astaroth, having a mixed moveset and a single weapon (the Great Ax).
In Soulcalibur III, Berserker is a non-playable knight with gray armor who wields a lance. Only a few Berserkers are left at this time. He is non-playable, but can easily be created using the Unholy and Evil armor with a knight's cape. Berserker's appearance completely changed between the two games, this is probably because of the return of Rock being in Soulcalibur III, so Berserker has now changed into a common knight. Another possible cause is that Johan Durer's profile states that his people were once knights.
His latest appearance is Soulcalibur Legends, in which he is a common enemy that is one of the most durable in the game. This Berserker is much like the one in Soulcalibur II but instead of an ax, he wields a mace. His appearance is similar to his first, third, and fifth costumes from Soulcalibur II, but it's not identical.
- Berserker is absent in Soulcalibur IV, but it is possible to create him from Soulcalibur II. It is also possible that the knights in Ostrheinsburg Castle Throne Room could be Berserkers, since they look identical and have lances.
- Like Voldo and Aeon Calcos, Berserkers don't have dialogues, merely a few grunts.
